Give short answers:

What is ginning?

Answer :

Ginning is the process of separating the soft and fluffy ball of cotton fibre from its seeds. Ginning is the process used to separate the cotton fibres from the cotton seeds. Perfect ginning operation would be performed if the separation of fibres from the seed was done without the slightest injury to either seeds or the fibre. Before ginning, the cotton seeds are first dried in the sunlight to remove any moisture content from them. Any organisms, leaves, stems and other particles are removed from them before ginning.

Before the invention of gins, cotton ginning was done by hand. It was highly labour intensive and required many days to separate the fibre and the seeds. But after the invention of gins, the process was highly mechanised. It also helps to prevent wastage to some extent and ensures the collection of seed and seedless cotton separately.
